    My Son Really Liked It There is so much vying for our children's

    My Son Really Liked It
    There is so much vying for our children's attention that when my son wanted to read this book, I was so thrilled! He first read A Boys Guide to Making Really Good Choices. He is a typical nine year old, but I am so thankful that he has a desire to learn more about following God.  
    I liked the fact that this book is written in terms boys can understand! Each chapter contains a story about a boy - and something he is going through. Maybe he is struggling with paying attention in school, obeying his parents, doing what he is supposed to verses what he wants to do. After initiating the chapter with a catchy practical story, Jim goes on to use an acrostic with the main idea in the chapter to further explain how God wants the boy to handle the situation. 
    For example: In the chapter on school, the acrostic is 
    See school as a training ground for life
    Check your attitude
    Homework is a priority
    Organize for success
    Other stuff is part of school
    Listen to your parents
    Each title has a section under it with an explanation, some Bible verses, thoughts and journal space. At the end of each chapter there is a Straight Talk for Your Heart and a Prayer. 

    I really feel like this book is an asset to any boy's life. There is so much wisdom they can apply and it can be read over and over. They can read it slowly taking a chapter or a letter at a time, or quickly, going back later for reference  Our kids need more books like this!

    This is what my nine year old had to say: 
    I liked the stories in the book about Dylan and his life. I felt like I could relate to some of them especially about being distracted during school thinking about my video games. I also learned lessons about obeying my parents and respecting them, doing good in school and working hard. It helped me with my prayers and I learned more about God. 
    I was blessed with this book by the publisher in exchange for my review. I only asked to give my honest opinion.
